This new service will allow passengers the convenience of an afternoon departure from both Dubai and New York, to complement the existing morning and evening departures of our existing three services. Passengers from New York will be able to enjoy convenient connections on to destinations such as Johannesburg, Nairobi, India and many cities on Emirates’ Middle East network with connection times under four hours.
Thanks to Emirates’ code-share agreement with JetBlue (B6) the new fourth daily service will allow particularly good connectivity with B6 flights to upstate New York – including Buffalo and Rochester and Syracuse, Puerto Rico, New England and Bermuda.
